There is a decreased flow of blood to a part of my heart . Does this mean i have a blockage?

I had gone to have a stress test last week. Today i got a call from the doctor and my world came crashing down. They told me that i wasn t scheduled to see the doctor till January but the receptionist asked me to come in next week. She told me that there was something abnormal about my results. When i asked her what it was, she told me that there is a decreased flow of blood to a part of my heart . Does this mean i have a blockage? If it was bad, wouldn t they have me come in sooner than tuesday? Please help, i am very scared.

this is physical - you have blockage in your heart artreries due to cholesterol plaques. The sooner this is found out the better - rather than knowing this after a heart attack. With proper exercise and medication, you will have a reasonably good quality of life

I am scheduled for a Nuclear Profusion test - after my stress/treadmill test showed - or my understanding of it - a less than full blip on the upper row of one of the pages of the EKG and after my bp went to 200. I felt fine the whole time. I assume this next test is to see the heart muscle image - question: is this to determine blood flow to the heart - or see any blockage problems - If problems, does this usually mean blockage, valve problem, and is surgery or medicine usually indicated when... etc. I have had an aortic valve insufficiency from birth - always told it was minor .

My question is: how soon will stem cell researchers find a way to grow new heart muscle and the blood vessels to feed them? Several years ago a cardiac surgeon butchered me, blocked blood flow to two parts of my left ventricle and robbed me of an active life. I would like to return to a normal existence.
